The Environment & Sustainability



Zylo Pipe Boxing and Casings Environment and Sustainability


INTRODUCTION


Zylo pipe boxing and pipe casing systems have been designed with the protection of the environment in mind. Our company works continuously to keep wastage to a minimum whilst simultaneously maximising the efficient use of materials and resources. The product itself is inherently environmentally friendly as it is manufactured from timber, a renewable and sustainable building material.




ZYLO MATERIALS


The Core - the moisture resistant core is made from wood residues, sawmill by-products and pulpwood, all from managed forests. Supplied by the leading European manufacturer of medium density fibreboard, the core material contains no hardwoods and is certified FSC® Mix.


External Coating - our external coatings are manufactured from bleach free resin impregnated papers composed of managed wood and wood waste. Impregnation resins and lacquer finishes are water-based and free of hazardous or harmful substances. The smooth finish decreases the requirement for undercoats, paints and other surface treatments. The external coating is available as FSC® Mix.


Adhesives all adhesives are water based and largely biodegradable with no hazardous waste. Our unique manufacturing process employs cold bonding techniques which require very low energy consumption compared to the heat and pressure methods associated with alternative steam bent ply products.




FIRE PROTECTION

Our product has been tested and classified to EN 13501 and EN/TS 15117 standards. For further details please contact our sales office.




PACKAGING AND TRANSPORT


We use the minimum of packaging that is practically possible including the use of recycled corrugated cardboard and paper products, all preferably sourced within the UK. Our transport policy is designed to ensure efficient and effective use of our own and contract transport resources. National carriers, local hauliers and our own transport are all used according to the size and location of each individual consignment to optimise fuel consumption, reduce partial loads and minimise the environmental impact.
